Subject: Love it
Sounds as if this theater is almost empty.I love the sound. It sounds as is they are jamming to a big empty hall,I would think is not the case.Yet sounds great with the hollow sound. Listen to this lovelight is raw and tight if that makes sense at all. yes is somewhat muddy at times but we still get to listen our musical heros this many years later play.
Subject: Summer of 69...
Good to high quality stereo audio and good to excellent mix.
There are better live recordings, and there are worse. For 1969, this one is fine.
Tape hiss apparent when musical dynamics are low. Yeah? So?
Welcome to 1969, the year NASA said "we're going to the Moon, tape hiss and all".
The "SHOW" is happening. The GRATEFUL DEAD perform their music effortlessly.
A nice slow version of "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", but the tape ain't hittin' the heads correctly, tape wobble and hiss haunt the recording.
China Cat Sunflower returns to the same audio quality and mix prior to "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" and goes into "High Time"...peculiar?
"Momma Tried" has some vocal distortion.
"Hard To Handle" is very trippy...and Pigpen holds it all together...
"Casey Jones" is an early arrangement.
"Turn On Your Love Light" is only 35 minutes and 01 second long, and Pigpen rocks the house. He directs the band like a conductor.
5 Stars for Pigpen and the DEAD, 4 stars for the recording/mix.
Eat, drink, be merry and listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the love.

I an no expert on sound quality, but anytime the Dead play Dark Star it is something special.

Subject: Good show
Very good show. Lovelight is good and Baby Blue is great. Definately deserves better than 2 stars. Sound is poor through the first half of the recording.
Subject: foggy sound
just a head's-up to those like me who scan back through for undiscovered nuggets- as far as performance, this show sounds like it was an effin great one, but the recording is muddy, with great hiss, and really not the best...can anyone clean 'er up?
